Steig auf, geliebter Schatten
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Steig auf, geliebter Schatten,
Vor mir in toter Nacht,
Und lab mich Todesmatten
Mit deiner Nähe Macht!

Du hast's gekonnt im Leben,
Du kannst es auch im Tod.
Sich nicht dem Schmerz ergeben,
War immer dein Gebot.

So komm, still meine Tränen,
Gib meiner Seele Schwung,
Und Kraft den welken Sehnen,
Und mach mich wieder jung.

Aixeca’t, ombra estimada
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Aixeca’t, ombra estimada,
davant meu, a la nit de mort,
i conforta la meva mortal feblesa,
per la força de la teva presència!

Si ho has pogut fer en la vida,
ho pots fer també en la mort.
No rendir-se al dolor
ha estat sempre la teva voluntat.

Així doncs, vine, asseca les meves llàgrimes,
dóna vigor a la meva ànima
i força als meus nervis afeblits,
i fes-me tornar jove de nou.
